Introduction: DIY Easy Bench Vise
This is simple project with 3d printing. I found on thingiverse very well designed functional Machine vise. But it has something missed. Sticking to surface is a bit problem. Because it is vise it has to be rigid and stationary or you want to call "fixed". So I redesign the base part of vise and use some old apple peeler to make vacuum based holder. Now it can be used as a real vise :)
- 3D Printing
- Something has vacuum holder( I used old apple peeler)
- 2 Nuts and bolts( Size is up to your own design)
Step 1: Gathering Parts
- An old apple peeler or some kind of vacuum base holder
- 3D printed parts
- Nuts and bolts
- I think its enough :)
Step 2: Redesign Vise in Software to Connect With Vacuum
I redesigned the part that fit with the vacuum holder.
Step 3: Making Parts Ready
Remove the two nuts that holding peeler. And remove the vacuum base from peeler. Now its about to be ready.
Step 4: 3D Print the Parts
Step 5: Time to Connect Things
First connect the main gears to sliding jaw. Be sure that notched side alligned.
Step 6: Keep Continue
Then connect the sliding jaw to base A. It should look like this.
Step 7: Putting Handle
Put the handle to the center of vise. Dont worry it will fit snugly :)
Step 8: Completing Upper Vise
Now put the base B on the base A and compress it gently. It will fit snugly again.
There you are! You have completed the upper half of our project :)
Step 9: Finalizing With Accesories
Now put the Jaw Plate and Base plate as shown in pictures.
Step 10: Vise With Vacuum
Now put the vacuum base to down below vise. And use bolts and nuts to fix it together.
Step 11: Vacuum Power
Then put the pieces together as shown in pictures.
Step 12: Happy Ending
Now you have completed project. This vise wil be your 3rd and 4th hand. Be sure :)
It will hold anything and you will work amazingly ! :)
